How to Post a Job

Welcome to  hs-logo-primary-md

We are excited to announce that Oregon Tech's Handshake recruiting platform is now OPEN! 
Below are quick steps that will assist you as we transition over to Handshake.

What is Handshake, and why the change?

Handshake is the fast and powerful new recruiting platform for sourcing Oregon Tech students and alumni.  It uses cutting edge technology to better connect you with qualified candidates.

If you already use Handshake:

Go to app.joinhandshake.com and sign in with your user name and password.
Once logged into Handshake, go to the “Connect with Schools” page and click “Request Approval” for Oregon Institute of Technology. 

If your company is registered, but a new recruiter from your company is joining:

Go to Handshake Employer Registrations 
Follow the steps to create an account and connect with your employer’s profile on Handshake.

If your company is entirely new to Handshake:

Go to Handshake Employer Registrations
Follow the steps to create an Employer Account.
Our Career Services Team will then approve your account within three business days, adding you as an approved employer. 
Once your account is approved, you will be able to post jobs and internships in Handshake.

We recommend that you STOP posting positions to Jobs4Owls. This portal will no longer be available as of 6/30/17, and students will be using Handshake as their primary portal as of April, 2017.

*Please be aware that until June 30 you may receive resumes from both Jobs4Owls and Handshake as students transition over to Handshake.
